Two-day riding conference at Sunrise

Two-day riding conference at Sunrise

PUSLINCH - Sunrise Therapeutic Riding and Learning Centre recently hosted a two-day therapeutic riding conference in Puslinch in honour of the organization’s 35th Anniversary.  

About 74 delegates representing 29 therapeutic riding centres across six provinces assembled at Crieff Hills Conference Centre and the Sunrise Farm.    

Participants had the unique opportunity to learn from many industry leaders and experts in their fields.   Clinics and workshops covered a wide range of topics including horse conformation, movement and assessment, saddle fitting, care of the older horse, volunteer management, leadership & personality types and effective communication with clients.   

As keynote speaker, Molly Burke, a professional motivational speaker and former Sunrise rider, presented an address on helping others and finding hope.   

Burke will also be speaking at Sunrise’s upcoming “Celebrate Sunrise!” fundraising event on June 4.    

Delegates also had the rare opportunity to learn from each other, sharing their personal experiences, challenges and ideas.
